No Music for the Kids

No Music For the Kids

There’s a summer camp for youth going on for the next couple of week (luckily, there are a lot of summer camps offered around Louisville!).  But, this one in particular asked me to do some exercises with the kids.  Sure!  Chelly Chell loves the kids! So, I put on my thinking cap for a fun way that kids could exercise.  When I taught, I used songs off the radio to do our exercise.  This sounds like a great plan for my current project.  Now, I admit – I am not ‘hip’ when it comes to today’s music.  I couldn’t tell you what the most popular tunes are right now.  Heck, I’m still jammin to “The Show”.   So, I went to and looked up the top 3 urban hits.  The songs seemed pretty catchy – until I looked up the lyrics and saw what they really said.  Here are the top three songs and some of the words:

Look At Me Now – Chris Brown

Lil n-gga bigger than gorilla cause I’m killing every n-gga that try to be on my sh-t.  Better cuff your chick if you with her, I can get her and she accidentally slip and fall on my d-ck.  Ooops, I said on my d-ck,
I aint really mean to say on my d-ck, but since we talking about my d-ck all of you haters say hi to it.

Roll Up – Wiz Khalifa

I try to stay out your business, but on the real you’re so obvious. And if you keep fitting me in your plans and f-ckin’ up, your man’s gonna catch onto us.  That white sand surrounding us. He be handcuffing, he should work for them officers. If you rolling I got a spot where I can put you on this medical, and send you home doctored up. You wanna ride with me cause you say that he boring.   Wake up you rollin’ weed, cooking eggs in the morning, ain’t scared to spend this money I know I’ll make more of it.

My Last – Big Sean

Ok, now where that alcohol, you aint even got to ask cause I’mma drink it all like, like its my last.  She a 7 in the face, but a 10 in the a$s. She even look better by the end of my glass.  See I just walked in fresher than the shirts off in this muthf-cka. I’mma, I’mma need a bad broad to twirk off in this muthaf-cka.  I’mma go hard till it hurts off in this muthaf-cka. I’mma ball so you gotta work off in this muthaf-cka.  The work, and I can get you anything you want I could, I could, I could, I could put you on.

So, as you can probably guess, I didn’t use any of today’s popular music for our exercises.  Yeah, I know there’s a clean version to most songs but the last thing I want is for young Andre to yell out the explicit words he knows.  Instead I brought back the wonderful “Planet Rock” where no words are necessary and all you need is a good beat! ROCK ON!!
